I already contacted a person I know to see if I can somehow sort this out.
Argentina's customs office is the worst, I tell you.
Wish me luck! If I have success I'll have my monitor by next week I guess :/

Sorry to hear about your run in with customs, Hope it all get's sorted out without having to cost you an arm and a leg. redface.gif

Hi,

I have some problems with dark shadows and dark lines. I think, the Monitor ist defect. I tested it with different PCs. What do you think?

Can anyone tell me how thick the panel of the Achieva is? Need to know before buying a wall/desk mount for it.

REGARDING the LX Ergotron desk mount. I have an earlier model than shown and its holds the monitor well. Just tighten the hex nut to the required resistance and you're good to go. Feels very solid and it could prob. go a kgs or so more.

This is my first post on here. I've been a hardware junkie since the mid-90's (first build was a Pentium 75), but life got in the way and I haven't built a rig since the Core 2 Duo was the latest and greatest. I don't know how or why, but I've caught the bug in a big way again over the past week and built a new rig (i7-3770k, ROG Maximus V Formula, GTX680, watercooled, etc.). Thanks to this forum, I stumbled on the Korean IPS craze and after much thought have decided to purchase three Acheiva Shimian IPSI monitors and a 3-screen VESA mount. When I was planning out my system, I never imagined I'd end up wanting three 2560x1440 monitors. As usual, my plans and budget spiralled way out of control. Because of this, my rig is admittedly very underpowered for this setup. I'm currently only running a single Asus GTX680 2MB DirectCUII Top. Soon to be watercooled, overvolted, and overclocked. What I need to know is if I can hook up all three monitors (temporarily) to my single card. The card has two dual link DVI, one HDMI and one DisplayPort. Can I connect them to both dual link DVIs and the third to the DiplayPort with an active adapter? I'll soon add a second and maybe even a third card. Any feedback would be appreciated. Also, if anyone has any estimates as to exactly how much hardware I'm going to need to run all three smoothly at 7680x1440, please let me know. I'm thinking I'll need at least 3x GTX680 2GB or 2x GTX680 4GB, maybe even 3x GTX680 4GB. Also, does anyone know if the IPSB's with the full glass fronts are still available? I really like the look of them. Finally, are there any plans in the works to make the 120Hz overclockable versions again? If so, I'd be tempted to wait. Sorry for all the questions, but like I said, I've only been back at this for about a week, so I have a lot to learn.

From what I've read, Nvidia hardware/software does not allow you to run 3 monitors off 1 video card. I could be wrong about this though.

Nividia surround introduced with the Kepler cards allows you to run 3 monitors from a single card. thumb.gif

Excellent. Thanks for the insight. Ordered three of the Lite versions for $279.99/EA.

Hi,

I've been reading this thread because I would like to buy this monitor for my son and unfortunately I am not that tech savvy. So I was wondering if any of you guys could help me?I have a 21.5" imac mid 2011 model. 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5 / 12 GB RAM / AMD Radeon HD 6750M 512 MB. Will we be experiencing a lot of lag when hooking up a 1440p monitor to this base imac model? Can my computer be able to handle this monitor smoothly? we do not use it for gaming but merely web browsing/video editing/ watching movies etc. Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Quick question, just ordered a Shimian from ta_planet. I know a lot of these guys are sending power adapters to up the voltage.
Question 1: Are these power adapters grounded? I remember reading somewhere that they weren't
Question 2: I also read somewhere that they have jumpers to allow you to select the correct voltage for your region. Do you set these jumpers to the input voltage or the desired output voltage? Thanks
